A Free 15-Hour Course on Kubernetes at edX.org

The Linux Foundation has just released a free course on edX on Kubernetes, which provides an in-depth view on this powerful system for managing containerized applications.

Kubernetes builds upon 15 years of experience of running production workloads at Google, and is quickly gaining traction as the standard open source platform enabling deployments across public, private, hybrid, and multi-cloud environments.

“In this course, we’ll discuss some of Kubernetes’ basic concepts and talk about the architecture of the system, the problems it solves, and the model that it uses to handle containerized deployments and scaling. This course offers an introduction to Kubernetes and includes technical instructions on how to deploy a stand-alone and multi-tier application. You’ll learn about ConfigMaps and Secrets, and how to use Ingress,” explains the Linux Foundation.

This 10-15 hours course, taught by Neependra Khare, Founder of CloudYuga Technologies, is the seventh edX MOOC offered by The Linux Foundation. In total, over 850,000 students have enrolled across these free courses, which include Intro to Linux, Intro to Cloud Infrastructure Technologies, Introduction to OpenStackIntroduction to DevOps: Transforming and Improving Operations, Introduction to Cloud Foundry and Cloud Native Software Architecture and Introduction to Apache Hadoop.

“Containers have taken the technology sector by storm, and with increasing adoption comes an expanding need for qualified individuals to manage them,” said edX CEO and MIT Professor Anant Agarwal.
